Comment: Amazing! On pages 29 to 33 of this comic we have the American debut of Sheena, Queen of the Jungle! However, these pages are strips 11 to 15. The first Sheena strip is in the Wags sample pages elsewhere on this website. We still need strips 2 to 10. I hope they turn up someday. Thank you so much for sharing this comic!
